Juve: The Old Lady find themselves in fourth place with 69 points, but level with fifth-place Milan. Pirlo's side are only ahead because of goal differential, but horrendous form based on their standards sees them on the brink of potentially failing to qualify for the Champions League. In what would be a devastating result, Juve need a draw here to feel good about where things are and to continue to control their own destiny.
Milan: Do or die here for Milan. A loss will likely end their dreams of Europe, putting them essentially four points back when you think about Juve's tiebreaker advantage of goal differential. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and company are hoping the fourth time's the charm as they've failed to beat Juve in three meetings this season -- a loss in the league and two draws in the Coppa Italia semifinals. Win, and they set themselves up nicely for UCL. A loss likely will mean Europa League.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Ibra both score, but once again Juve do enough to get a result that favors them. Pick: Juve 1, Milan 1
